Amazon Total War Re-Ignited Now Available

by | 8/23/2011 5:58 AM

The Alpha release of ATW Re-Ignited is now available for downloading. See here for more details.

ParthianShot and partner have been working hard to modify the original Amazon Total War of SubRosa and its further modification by Ares7667, to update these fantastic mods with recently unearthed archaeological evidence of how the Sarmatians and other Steppe Tribes actually were. The result is more historically accurate models, skins, and costs- with not a few of the units being revamped.

The mod runs on Barbarian Invasion 1.6, so you will need to have that installed in order to play.

New Poll for August!

by | 8/9/2011 1:22 AM

There is a new poll: What type of general are you?

Are you the set-piece phalanx commander who marches slowly forward to crush your enemies in a vice of spears and shields? Or are you one who prefers a mix of troops with which to deal with an irritating foe? Do you sweep forward with a horde in a long line and envelop your opponent in a wave of barbarian swordsmen, or a fleet-footed cavalry commander who runs their opponent into the ground and trods upon them with shod hooves?

Let us know!
